The students who have submitted their application and enrollment forms by 14 August and have their names on the merit list, can proceed to the next step of the admission process. The document verification, submission of fees, and undertaking will take place from 18 to 25 August. After that, the second and third merit lists would be released.
Students are expected to keep a number of documents ready for the application process. These include a passport size photograph, mark sheets of Class 10 and 12 results, identity proof, digitally scanned signature and proof of date of birth.
The cut-off percentages were expected to rise this year after the results of the Maharashtra HSC examinations and most other state boards registered a higher pass percentage than previous years.
